The Family and Community Services Insights Analysis and Research (FACSIAR) team in the Department of Communities and Justice (DCJ) have developed a hub which gives access to evidence on what works to help ensure positive outcomes for vulnerable families.
The Evidence Hub includes DCJ-commissioned evidence reviews, evaluations, evidence to action notes, and evidence and gap maps.
There’s also a series of short guides about accessing high quality evidence.
The guides and factsheets summarise key concepts, and aim to assist professionals and practitioners find, interpret and use good-quality evidence from research, evaluations, grey literature and other sources.
The hub is an evolving source of evidence, so stay tuned for the release of the evaluation repository section in coming months.
